In Conversation with Lyndon Terracini

John Rayment

June 14, 2021

Lighting guru John Rayment has created designs for events of all scales and styles over the course of his career, ranging from intimate dance works all the way to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Sydney 2000 Olympics. His work for Opera Australia includes several iterations of Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, our enduring production of La Bohème, and our 2013 Ring Cycle. He’s returning in 2021 to create a bold new lighting design for Bluebeard’s Castle and our new Ring Cycle in Brisbane.


In this conversation with our Artistic Director, Lyndon Terracini, John talks about the enormous technical challenges of the Sydney 2000 Olympics ceremonies, as well as creating Hong Kong: A Symphony of Lights, the world’s largest permanent light show. He also talks about his plans for Bluebeard’s Castle and the Ring Cycle.
